When It Rains It Pours, in Euroland

Key News
TOKYO, March 18 (Reuters) - A Japanese deputy finance minister said on Thursday that China should understand global calls for a more flexible yuan, as the United States kept up pressure on China to let the Chinese currency rise.  
The currency debate has turned acrimonious, with 130 U.S. lawmakers demanding sanctions unless China gives up what they see as an unfair competitive advantage by allowing the yuan to appreciate. 
But Yoshihiko Noda, one of Japan's two deputy finance ministers, said it would be "wrong" for Washington to resort to sanctions. 
"I don't know if the United States will impose sanctions, but I don't think that would be the right way of dealing with it," Noda told a news conference. 
"Basically, such an action is not desirable. But I want China to understand there are expectations for a more flexible yuan, not only from the United States," he said. 
Noda repeated that Japan and other Asian neighbours want a flexible yuan, which he said would benefit both the world and China.

FX Trading – When It Rains It Pours, in Euroland
The euro was the big loser yesterday, even when most other majors were able to either eke out gains or at least hold their ground versus the buck. Today the buck is higher versus the entire pack.
And today the euro presses lower for a whole slew of reasons. First, and most prevalent in the marketplace, is the continued uncertainty surrounding the bailout of Greece, from where and when and if it might come.
Headlines on Angela Merkel and Germany not abandoning its export advantages did the trick yesterday, naturally calling into question Germany’s role and commitment to helping save the European Monetary System from new trouble.
To take from Ambrose Evans-Pritchard again (thanks RS!), as I did in Tuesday Currency Currents, Merkel’s rebuttal “came as the IMF’s chief Dominique Strauss-Kahn said it was time for Berlin to rethink its single-minded pursuit of exports, warning that both Germany and China need to play their part in rebalancing the global system rather than relying on huge structural surpluses. "This must change. Internal demand must be strengthened with more consumption," he told the European Parliament.”
That desired shift of demand and idea of rebalancing is not new. The world’s been hashing over the needs for China to take major steps to help the globe rebalance. And we’ve mentioned a few times recently similar position in which Germany finds itself within the Eurozone economy.
It’s almost refreshing to hear the IMF speak out like that, but it’s not likely to change anything. Though the IMF may still have some influence on the next steps toward resolving this Eurozone ruckus.
Watching the nose cut off ... to spite the face?
Germany’s less-than-enthusiastic reaction to assisting in bailout efforts, plus Angela Merkel’s recent comments, could ending up hurting Germany’s economy, as it may show they’re ignoring an opportunity to rebalance. Assuming “unearned” responsibility for another country’s indiscretions, however, is not an appealing option and underpins one of the single-currency system’s major faults.
It kind of reminds me of (one of) the reasons I refused to join a Fraternity when I was in school – you’re committed to backing up your “brothers” at all costs despite the fact you have no control over their shortcomings or misdeeds. 
I digress.
Anyway, here’s what else is prompting the turn towards IMF assistance, from Reuters ...
Prime Minister George Papandreou told the European Parliament that draconian austerity measures announced by his socialist government showed it was committed to the stability of the euro and would carry out necessary structural reforms. 
"But if we keep borrowing at very high rates, and this is the challenge we have, we cannot sustain the deficit reduction that these hard measures aim to achieve," he told a committee of the EU legislature. 
"We should be able to borrow at rates that are normal." 
Let me ask, George, do you mean you should be able to borrow at Germany’s rates; is that what you consider “normal?”
The chart at the right shows the widening spread between Greece 10-year government bonds and German 10-year government bonds. [Chart not available in text format.]

The last month has been a bit better for this spread, but I’m not sure the wining from Greece’s Prime Minister is going to help the situation.
Not so funny, the Eurozone took a pretty big hit to their current account, as it was reported this morning.  [Chart not available in text format.]
Is the euro’s correction over?

Thorough Analysis, Clear Direction, Fat Profits!
The last down-leg of EURUSD was kind to our members – they were able to reel in roughly 620 pips profit on our last short position targeting euro weakness; that’s a nice profit, I don’t care who you are. 
Jack and JR have been focused tightly on this pair as it’s chopped slightly higher over recent weeks. And as soon as they deem this correction/consolidation phase as being over, they plan to get our members back on this train and capitalize as EURUSD moves towards their next target ... and then eventually to par versus the US dollar. 
Their thorough global analysis, plus specific trading instructions, offers you a well-paced initiation into currency trading. Be you a newbie, a seasoned currency investor, or whatever else, we’re with you every step of the way, recommending new trades, alerting you to developing opportunities, helping you build an analytical foundation from which you can begin to make currency market decisions all on your own.
